This ad features Michael J. Fox talking about the importance of having a president that supports stem cell research. The ad was filmed in Hampton, NH, following a town hall meeting in which Kerry and Fox called for a White House with a commitment to finding cures that could help millions of Americans.
Michael J. Fox joined John Kerry in New Hampshire to speak personally about the importance of lifting the barriers that stand in the way of science to find cures that may exist. Continuing in our nation's great tradition of discovery, John Kerry and John Edwards believe that stem cell research holds immense promise for millions of children and adults suffering from incurable diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, heart disease, cancer, and spinal cord injuries. As president, John Kerry will lift the ideologically-driven restrictions on stem cell research that is impeding progress toward cures for millions of Americans suffering from debilitating diseases. He will fund this research, with at least $100 million a year, while ensuring strict ethical oversight of the research.
